Hi guys,

My ML 270 is getting to be a slow starter. It cranks fine but now seems to take a long crank to make it fire.

Any suggestions?

Andrew:confused:

You have a injector starting to leak off or a air leak into the system,

Money is on a injector, you need a leak off test done!

a das live test while cranking will confirm this scenario. removing the leak off pipe and observing leak off rates visually is usually diagnostic. often checking smooth running values backs up the diagnosis but not always. for air draw faults check for air in pipes while cranking.
